(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- The date has been locked in for the fourth annual F.A.M.E. (Fans of Adult Media and Entertainment) Awards Show. The fans will vote on their favorites in adult via the world wide web and the winners will be announced as part of a star-studded event on June 13, 2009, at the Los Angeles Convention Center as part of Erotica LA.
''Our hope is that the F.A.M.E. Awards are to fans what the AVN Awards are to critics. Here, the fans recognize the stars and companies for their achievements in different categories. It’s an incredible way for the end user to have say… and to make history,'' says Paul Fishbein, President of AVN Media Network, and co-sponsor of F.A.M.E. ''This awards show has truly become an event that we feel all of the studios and stars of our industry look forward to year after year and we look forward to co-producing it for them.''
The first round of voting where fans will select the finalists in each category is now open on the F.A.M.E. website, www.thefameawards.com, with the final voting round slated to begin on April 21st. Well over 100,000 votes were cast for last year’s contest, and this year’s edition should surpass those numbers.
This show has really been embraced by both the fans and the entire adult industry,'' Dan Davis, Editor-in-Chief of Genesis Magazine and F.A.M.E. Spokesman said. ''The entire event, from voting to the awards show itself, has grown each year and we expect this year to continue that trend. We are extremely grateful to all of the fans, stars and companies who have supported us presenting this event, and we can’t wait to see the response this year.''
The F.A.M.E. Awards were created in 2006 by Genesis Magazine (www.genesismagazine.com), Adam & Eve (www.adameve.com), WantedList.com and AVN.com as a way for fans to honor their favorite adult film stars, directors, movies and companies.
It is the first show where the fans take part in the entire process —from choosing the finalists to ultimately selecting the winners in over a dozen categories.
[That statement is false. The FOXE Awards (Fans Of X-rated Entertainment) was first, which started nearly 20 years ago. -Ed.]
The awards show is slated to take place at the Los Angeles Convention Center as part of Erotica LA. Admission to the 2009 F.A.M.E. Awards is free with admission to Erotica LA, and information on tickets for the convention can be found at www.erotica-LA.com. Hosts for the show will be announced in the coming weeks.
